    ugh, the Canadians are worse than the Russians these days

    Props to Liza for her 4th place, if she improves by next event she could make the final.

    Suzuki made up that 3 points of that deficit in TES. Katelyn won on PCS, which I don't agree with.

    Bah! Home-cooking bonus. Akiko won this one, in my book. UK commentators on Eurosport seem to also think so.

    I give Liza a lot of credit too. She never gives up for a second, that I will say. Fights for everything, and gives her all. She is actually not my favorite of the Russians but she has my admiration.

    The scores awarded to Chan, Osmond, and Virtue/Moir in this competition have all been laughable. There is no doubt that Akiko Suzuki deserved to win the Ladies event, but the judges gave it to Osmond with a totally indefensible PCS score. This result shows why most people don't take figure skating seriously as a sport. The results are based much more on politics than what the competitors actually do on the ice.

    I think Osmond is quite pleasant to watch and her jumps (when landed) are really nice, but if Akiko's PCS deserve 59ish, Kaetlyn doesn't deserve the same/similar 59+ amount right now IMO.

    I strongly disagree with it. It actually makes me wonder what the judges can be thinking. I disagree with skaters being held back in PCS just because they are new on the scene but to me to say she had better PCS than Suzuki is crazy.

    Poor Akiko. Her program and costume are just gorgeous. Her skating is marvelous. She was really robbed today.

    To clarify, she didn't win in PCS--but Akiko barely squeked by with the win in PCS.

    When I say she won on PCS, she got a few extra points. Her PCS in Nebelhorn was 56. How did she suddenly improve by 3 points?!

    The same totally fraudulent judging that allowed Kaetlyn Osmond to undeservedly win the Ladies event will no doubt be on display later on in the Ice Dance and Men's events, where Virtue/Moir and Chan will win regardless of how many mistakes they make. There is absolutely no justification for Kaetlyn Osmond's PCS score today, other than the fact that the judges wanted to award the win to the home skater. Akiko Suzuki was robbed.
